Creative types began flocking to the remote region near Joshua Tree National Park in the ’60s, and many of that decade’s bohemian spiritual leanings remain. Located where the Mojave and Colorado Deserts meet, the surreal landscape is punctuated with gnarled Yucca trees, formidable rock formations, and pastel-shaded sunsets—and sure to lull anyone into a meditative state. And if the scenery doesn’t do it, the sound bath at the famed Integretron will! The slow-growing Joshua tree, which graces much of the park's desert ecosystem, was named by settlers who crossed the Mojave Desert in the mid-1800s. The tree's unusual shape reminded them of the Bible story in which Joshua reaches his hands up to the sky in prayer. The trees bloom in spring between February and April... their blossoms an absolute delight among the desert backdrop. There's no doubt that Joshua Tree is a mystical vortex for spiritual connection. Most leave this sacred land renewed and transformed by it.
Relax and nourish your creativity at the Spirit Wind Oasis, a spacious + architecturally significant home nestled in the hills of Joshua Tree, surrounded by acres of sacred land, filled with native Joshua Trees, cacti, hammocks for napping, a hot tub for soaking, and plenty of space to center yourself in divine magic. Speaking of, the magic is in the details :: gaze at the desert moon + stars through the Spirit Wind telescope, spin your favorite vinyl records on Spirit Wind's vintage turntable, or connect with your spirit animal outdoors with Spirit Wind's abundant wildlife. Connect with the Cosmos :: Spirit Wind is designed to harmonize with the planets - windows and walls align with the sun and moon to trace and make manifest equinoxes of both Spring and Fall.

The Mala Workshop
What is a mala? Mala beads are a strand of 108 beads used as a tool during mantra meditations. They are nourished by the roots of ancient traditions and inspire spiritually-oriented people who are guided by intuition, self-healing powers, and the awakening of the heart + spirit. You don't have to be religious or have a spiritual practice to have a mala. Some of us are simply finding ways to seek spirit in our lives. Your mala can serve as a reminder for the qualities you envision yourself having and the positive changes you wish to manifest in your life.
In the Mala Workshop, participants will learn the sacred art of creating a custom mala infused with positive energy + intentions. We'll explore the metaphysical healing benefits of crystals, and how to use the mala as a tool for daily practice through mantra + meditation. Each person will leave the workshop with a beautiful mala made of high-vibrational gemstones + materials.
The mala workshop includes:
- A discussion about the history of mala beads, how they are used + why the number 108 is significant.
- A full chakra meditation to explore the balance of your subtle body energy + uncover what stones you need to support it.
- A lesson about the individual gemstones and their healing qualities (over 20 different stones to choose from).
- A guided lesson in hand-knotting.
- Plenty of time to design + create your custom mala.
- A one-on-one blessing as you seal your intention and welcome your mala into the world!
Workshop length: 4 hours
*all supplies + materials included.
The Integretron Sound Bath
The Integretron is an unforgettable sound experience for those who seek deep relaxation, rejuvenation, and introspection. All Sound Baths are 60-minute sonic healing sessions that consist of:
- A brief introduction to the Integratron and its history and sound qualities
- 25 minutes of quartz crystal bowls played live
- The balance of the hour to integrate the sound and relax in the sound chamber to ambient music.
You will be resting comfortably in the deeply resonant, multi-wave sound chamber while a sequence of quartz crystal singing bowls are played, each one keyed to the energy centers or chakras of the body, where sound is nutrition for the nervous system. The results are waves of peace, heightened awareness, and relaxation of the mind and body.

Meet the Heart
My name is Tammy Fodrey and I’m so happy that you've found Malas In Bloom, my unique company that I founded in 2015, and the way in which I've chosen to tie my life's journey together into one sacred offering. I've been preparing for this - from my strong connection to spirit as a young child, to my rebellious teenage years, to the love found and the love lost, my world travels, the birth of my beautiful babies, the moments of joy and the moments of heartache. The only constant in my life has been change. I am in a continuous state of blooming.
I'm a yogi and a free spirited mama, obsessed with crystals, fresh flower bouquets, the moon and her cycles, the stars and their wisdom. I'm a Pisces and a dreamer, and I have a soft spot for my two rescue pups. I believe that we have the power within us to live life intentionally, and to show up to every moment and every breathe with attention to the Atma (Divine Self). As we manifest our highest intentions through our practices, we continue to bloom, unfold and unfurl, and unlearn what is untrue. Through this process, we heal, and the entire world is healed through us. This is the first step toward a more peaceful collective experience. And it is most definitely a step closer to a more joyful existence.
I've been teaching yoga since 2011 and as a teacher and practitioner, I prefer to shape the body with rhythmic, soulful movements and long, deep breaths. Yoga is for everybody. It does not require us to look or act a certain way, but it does encourage us to show up as we are, at any given moment, with the intention of looking inward. My practice has taught me that I crave depth and meaning, which is why I started using japa mala meditation. I have found that mantra meditation combined with the metaphysical benefits of crystals as a tool for healing can deepen yoga not just as a practice but as a way of living every moment with intention. Therefore life is not merely happening to us, but it's happening on purpose for us, because we willed it to happen! There is immense power in that.
This retreat is an extension of my heart and my passion for sharing tools that I know without a doubt will bring healing, joy and abundance to women's lives. I look forward to meeting you, sharing sacred space with you, and blooming beside you this Spring in one of my favorite places on the planet, Joshua Tree.
All the love,
